To Mr. Dean Tabor, teacher 
and friend, we, the students of 
East Carolina Teachers College, 
affectionately dedicate the 1940 
edition of the Tecoan. 










44* \*# JP 






You are leaving College at a critical period in the world's history; but if 
conditions are bad, your opportunities are equally as great. Few people possess 
the power, the ability to alter the situation as do you. There is a conflict be- 
tween democratic and autocratic ideals. Enter this conflict; choose wisely from 
the values at your disposal; set standards that are high; encourage group think- 
ing and group leadership as opposed to dictatorship. Only in this way can the 
people continue to control and operate their social and economic plans. 

May the future hold for you happiness and success. 

Leon R. Meadows 


Nail to the masthead of your 
life the motto of your State, "To 
be rather than to seem to be," 
and you will find yourself far 
along the road to happiness and 


Successful life cannot be ex- 
pressed in terms of amusement, 
wealth, notoriety, popularity, or 
even goodness. To unselfishly 
love, labor with, and serve man- 
kind lifts one out of the com- 
monplace into the realm of com- 
plete and abundant living. The 
profession of teaching capitalizes 
the possibilities of life.

As usual, in this section of the yearbook, we have 
attempted to include snapshots depicting life on out 
campus during the past year. We wish to thank the 
large number of students who have helped us in 
compiling this section. 

AT E. C. T. C. 

Highlighting this page is the picture at the right 
of our swing band in action — in, believe it or not, 
the student council room. Notice also the industrious 
girls doing industrial work in the Industrial Arts 


m iv j 



The top picture at the left is of that newly organized 
bunch of intellectuals that calls itself the commerce 
sorority, under the alias of some Greek name. As the

The Women's Student Government Association is an organization to which all 
women students of the college automatically belong. The purpose of this organization 
is to develop student honor and self-control, and to promote high ideals and a sense of 
responsibility among the students of the college. 


Contacts with other campuses have been made through delegates who attended 
the National Student Federation Congress at the University of Minnesota, at Minne- 
apolis; the Southern Inter-Collegiate Association at Shorter College, Rome, Georgia; 
the North Carolina Federation of Students at the University of North Carolina; and 
the Southern Conference at New Orleans, Louisiana.

The Council of the Men's Student Govern- 
ment Association has strived diligently this 
year to promote all objectives in the interest 
of the men's student body. Acting under the 
authority of power vested in this body by men 
students, the Council undertook the task of 
revising the old constitution of the Men's 
Student Government Association. A United 
States flag was purchased from its appropri- 
ation, and it is flown daily on the front 


The men students on the campus are still gaining in number, and with the growth 
of the Men's Student Body, the council that guides it must also grow. Higher ideals of 
democracy, wisdom, and fairness are all symbols of growth in a student body, and 
these, carefully handled, can be the mainstay of student government.

Through its Sunday and Friday evening vesper services, the 
Y. W. C. A. this year has attempted to realize its purpose — to 
make for its members a full and creative life through a growing 
knowledge of God. Among the outstanding speakers at these 
services have been Mrs. Mildred Morgan, University of Iowa; Dr. 
Hornell Hart, Duke University; and Madame Sheu-Riesz of 
Chapel Hill, N. C. 

Deputation teams from Meredith College and North Carolina 
State have contributed to our programs, while we, in turn, have 
sent representatives to take part in their religious activities. Candle- 


lighting services have helped make our organization more inspirational and 
more beautiful for the student body. 

Delegates from the association have attended all conferences of the Stu- 
dent Christian Movement of the state and, in the spring, delegates attended 
the leadership conference held at Blue Ridge, N. C.

The Y. M.- C. A. was organized in the spring of 1939. It has 
for its purpose the realization of a full and creative life through a 
growing knowledge of God. The Y. M. and Y. W. have co- 
operated in bringing about this purpose through vesper services. 
Among the outstanding speakers of the year were Mrs. Mildred 
Morgan, who spoke on men and women relations, and Mr. Wiley 
Critz, Southeastern Y. M C. A. secretary. 

The organization is a member of the Inter-racial Group of 
the Y. M. and Y. W. C. A.'s of the State. Last summer the "Y" 
sent two delegates to the Southeastern Regional Conference at 


Blue Ridge. We have also taken part in the State "Y" conferences in Raleigh 
and Durham this year. One of the outstanding entertainments was a square 
dance given in the fall. It is the hope of those who have been its founders, that 
our "Y" will steadily push forward, fulfilling its purpose, until every boy on 
our campus has been reached.

The Junior "Y" Cabinet, as a co-worker with 
the Senior "Y" Cabinet, has played an important 
part in the Young Women's Christian Associ- 
ation on our campus. They have helped the 
success of this organization by participating in 
Friday and Sunday evening vespers, and actively 
attending morning watch. Their success is due 
largely to the chairman, and to Margaret Law- 
rence, cabinet adviser. 


The Science Club during the years 1939-40 
has made much progress through the coopera- 
tion of its officers, members and advisors. The 
club has sponsored a variety of interesting pro- 
grams given by students and outside speakers. 
Interest has been created in the study of Science 
Museums. During the spring term the club plans 
to do actual museum work. The annual club 
trip will complete the year's program. 

The aim and purpose of the Science Club is 
to inspire science students and to stimulate in 
them a desire for a deeper, more meaningful 
study, and to challenge them to become more 
conscious of the scientific world.

The Verse Speaking Choir is an organization 
three years old. Though identified with the 
English Club, it draws its membership from the 
entire student body, and since its beginning has 
had about seventy students actively interested in 
its work. Programs have been given for the 
English Club, for chapel and Y. W. C. A. exer- 
cises, and for the Third Street and the Green-

The English Club his had entertaining and instruc- 
tive monthly programs throughout this college year. 
The club, at the invitation of the Poe Society, was 
cc-spcnscr in bringing to our campus Miss F. Mere- 
dith Dietz, Editor of The Southern Literary Messenger. 
It organized and sponsors the Verse-Speaking Choir, 
under the leadership of Miss Mary Greene. Other 
grcups of rr.cmbers are working on dramatics and 
creative writing. 

The well-equipped club laboratory is a constant 
help to the English majors. Among the most important 
parti of the equipment, ether than books, are three 
large filing cabinets of clippings and pictures, a dupli- 
cator, projector, and a recording machine.

The Mathematics Club, with the help of its advisors, 
Miss Maria D. Graham, Miss Louise Williams, and 
Miss Elizabeth England, a newcomer to our depart- 
ment, has completed another successful year at East 
Carolina Teachers College. Our aim for more student 
programs and better attendance, has been fulfilled. 
The purposes of the club, which are: to appreciate 
the wonder and greatness of mathematics and how it 
has come to be what it is today, as well as, to explore 
the recreational side of life, have been carried out in 
the programs under the direction of the Vice-President, 
Julius Abernathy.

The Home Economics Club has as its motto: "Serv- 
ing our community, our schools and our families". 
From this motto came the club's purpose: To develop 
personality, leadership, initiative, and poise. During 
the year outstanding speakers have been: Mrs. Stella 
R. Cusick, assistant Farm Administrator from Raleigh, 
who spoke of Farm Security work in North Carolina; 
Miss Mamie E. Jenkins of the college faculty, who 
spoke on her trip to Europe; and Mrs. Adelaide E. 
Bloxton of the Home Economics faculty who spoke on 
the early history and significance of Williamsburg.

A club bulletin was edited and sent to some of the 
recent alumnae of the club. Delegates were sent to 
the North Carolina Association of Student Home 
Economics Clubs at Queens-Chicora College, Char- 
lotte. Agnes Watson, one of our members was chosen 
state president. The 1940 meeting of this association 
will be held at East Carolina Teachers College 
November 15-16. 


"The purpose of this organization shall be to gather and 
disseminate knowledge of the movement for the education 
of young children; to bring into active cooperation all child- 
hood education interests, including parent education; in 
nursery school, kindergarten and primary grades, and to 
raise the standard of the professional training for teachers 
and leaders in this field."

hood Education is a student branch of the state and national 
organization. Elementary majors and others who are in- 
terested in early childhood education are eligible for mem- 

Studio group activities, outstanding speakers, and informal 
socials — all of these — provide opportunity for growth, both 
professionally and socially. 

Among the speakers during the year was Dr. Hornell 
Hart, Professor of Social Ethics at Duke University, who 
was brought to our campus by the A. C. E., with the co- 
sponsorship of the Y. W. C. A. 

This student branch was selected to edit the first North

The Commerce Club has made its aim this year the in- 
creasing of interest in professional work and teaching. 

At the regular monthly meetings, programs which will 
give some insight into business conditions, explain what 
the business world expects of those who enter this field, and 
how the commercial teacher can prepare others to meet 
these needs are presented. They have included social as 
well as educational entertainment. 

One of the main projects for this year has been collecting 
articles of commercial interest for a museum in the Com- 
mercial Department. 

The Club has also been active in organizing the Zeta Delta 
Chapter of Alpha Iota Sorority — an international honorary 
business sorority — on the campus. This chapter was offi- 
cially installed on March 30 at an installation banquet. The 
Zeta Delta has twenty-four charter members and with Miss 
Velma Lowe and Miss Lena C. Ellis as sponsors great things 
are expected of this organization in the future. A group 
picture of the sorority appears in the snapshot section of 
this volume. 


Phi Sigma Chapter 

Organized in 192 5 under the name "Le Cercle Francais," 
the French Club of East Carolina Teachers College began 
its work with the purpose of encouraging the study of 
French, and fostering and developing a spirit of friendship 
among its members. Later the club adopted the name "Phi 

Last year we joined the Sigma Pi Alpha, national honor 
fraternity for students of foreign languages, and we have 
had a big part in its work this year. Professor R. C. Deal, 
head of the French department was elected National Presi- 
dent of the fraternity for this year, and we also had the 
honor of being host to the National Congress which met on 
our campus April 20, 1940. 

Members of the organization have enjoyed many social 
hours, including a weiner roast at Mr. and Mrs. Deal's.

The Phi Sigma Pi, national honorary educational fraternity, has completed another milestone 
in educational progressiveness, and in campus activities for 1939-40. 

Among the principal undertakings of the fraternity this year were the annual carnival; the 
presentation of "Peck vs. Peck", a courtroom farce in one act, and the Founders' Day program 
on May 1 1. 

The fraternity is composed of members who strive to promote a feeling of brotherhood and 
use the light of knowledge as their guiding star. 


This clandestine commhtee, little-known and 
less cared about, herewith betrays to the public 
its deep and dark secrets in the form of purpose 
and function. It certifies eligibles for publica- 
tions offices, and is responsible, no more, no less, 
for the actions of those two bodies — The Teco 
Echo, and The Tecoan. Latest to join the ranks 
of the scribblers and photo-snappers is the Pieces 


Chairman of Eight, a humor-literary magazine, or vice- 

versa. Although the magazine isn't responsible 
for until next year, it is already a member of the 
board in body and spirit.

College has been organized as an indispensable unit 
for prospective music teachers in a state whose 
strides in the field of music during the last few 
years have been immense, it still provides an en- 
joyable as well as a profitable source of activity for 
college students and teachers as well. It has fostered 
the love of good music during this year more than

It presents various seasonal performances 
during the year, outstanding among which 
are the Christmas and Easter programs sung

In the fall of 1939 the International Relations 
Club was formed on the campus by merging the 
History and the Social Science Clubs. The purpose 
of the club is to encourage the study of inter- 
national relations in affiliation with the Carnegie 
Endowment cf International Peace. 

During the year various programs were pre- 
sented by students who debated, lectured, and gave 
book reviews on international relations. 

One of the highlights of the year's activities was 
of the International Relation Clubs' held at Chapel Hill, 


The Ki Pi Players is composed of about fifty members. The purpose of this club 
is to give its members practical experience in the interpreting and producing of out- 
standing plays, to promote interest in the dramatic activities of the school, to develop 
the creative talent of the students of the school, to encourage the reading and witness- 
ing of better plays, and to promote an enthusiasm for the drama in all its phases. 

During the 1940 program, the club sponsored several one-act plays, with their 
major production coming in the spring quarter. The Ki Pi Players is a member of the 
Carolina Dramatics Association and the Alpha Psi Omega, a national honorary dramat- 
ics fraternity. Ethel Gaston, president of the group is pictured standing in front of the 
members photographed below.

In the spring of 1939 the Robert H. Wright 
Chapter of the Future Teachers of America was 
organized through the guidance of its sponsor, 
Miss Emma L. Hooper. Our club is affiliated with 
the National Education Association. The purpose 
of the club is to give teachers in training practical 
experience in working together in a democratic 
way on the problems of the profession. Programs 
in the club this year have included social entertain- 
ment as well as educational discussion. 


Although the Pieces 

of Eight made its de- 
but in the spring of 
1939, it was not pre- 
sented to the students 
until the fall of '39. 
During the past year 
it has financed itself, 
and kept under con- 
trol by its own power. Next year this humor-literary magazine will reach every stu- 
dent, and become an E. C. T. C. publication in its own right. This spring it braved the 
terrors of the deep and became, by student approval, a member of the Publications 
Board, that unknown quantity mentioned elsewhere in this pretentious pamphlet.

The policy of the Teco Echo this year has been to make 
the publication the voice of the students through its news 
stories, open forum, and editorials. During the year there 
have been five special editions. The first came in the fall 
quarter before the Varsity Club play. Before the senior 
play, "St.ige Door," the second special issue was pub- 
lished. The third special issue was in the form of an 
eight-page homecoming, dedication, and good will issue, 
of which over 3,000 copies were distributed over Green- 
ville and to the visitors on the campus on dedication day. 
In the spring quarter two special issues were published ; 
one being an April Fool issue which was distributed over 
the campus in addition to the regular issue which was 
distributed later in the week. Also an Alumni issue was 
published and distributed to approximately 1,600 former

With success as its goal, the Emerson Society 
has done much during the year 1939-40 to carry 
forth the success of its previous years. 

The high lights of our year have been: an in- 
formal dance given for the freshmen, the one- 
act play, "Girls in White," and the sponsorship 
of the winter dance. All of these were great 
successes — thanks to our loyal Emersons. 

Throughout this year, we have tried to enrich 
our lives with the more beautiful works of lit- 
erature and on the whole we consider this year 
a real success — a year each Emerson may well be 
proud of.

During the school year of 1939-40, the Edgar 
Allan Poe Literary Society tried to grow in mem- 
bership, appreciation of music, art, and literature, 
and in prestige on the campus. 

Three of our outstanding activities were: one, 
a very successful dance, having sponsors for the 
first time here; two, speeches by Miss F. Meredith 
Deitz, editor of the Southern Literary Messenger, 
who was here for three days, and ; three, a one- 
act play, "Sanatorium," which won the silver lov- 
ing cup in the contest between the three societies. 
WGTC, the new radio station in Greenville, asked 
the Poe Society to give a program on the air, rep- 
resenting the organizations on the campus.

The worthy purpose for which Sidney Lanier 
himself lived — those are the ideals ever before 
the loyal members of the Lanier Society. We 
began our work for the year by a friendly wel- 
come to the freshman class of 1939-40 through 
an outdoor supper at the college lake. Terminating 
the comical initiation of the new members, they 
enjoyed a delightful social hour. 

One of the highlights of the year was the Inter- 
Society one-act play contest in which our talent 
was well recognized. Our programs for monthly 
meetings are always planned for their literary 
interest as well as entertainment for the members. 

Under the sponsorship of the Lanier Society, 
the spring dance, through its original planning, 
excellent orchestra was the greatest success of 
the year.

The Varsity Club draws its members 
from lettermen in the various sports on 
the campus: football, basketball, base- 
ball, boxing, and tennis. This year for 
the first time monogram sweaters were 
awarded to boys earning them in tennis, 
one of the minor sports. 

Outstanding among the club's ac- 
tivities this year were: the Varsity Club 
play, "The Milky Way," at which 
the "Varsity Club Sweetheart" was 
crowned, and the third annual Varsity 
Club dance, centered around the club 
sweetheart, Miss Jean Wendt. 


The 1939 edition of the Pirate football squad assembled at the college two 
weeks before school opened for what they hoped would be one of their best 
seasons. The squad, although not large in size or number was an average small 
college squad and with several lettermen returning to form a nucleus, prospects 
looked better than they had for the past three years. 

After about two weeks training and only a week before the opening game 
injuries began to occur that put a damper on the spirits of everyone concerned. 
Two lettermen went out for the season with injured knees. 

During the entire season the squad was never at full strength and conse- 
quently suffered reverse after reverse in many hard fought games. 

Although the team from a winning standpoint, was far from successful, 
valuable experience was gained, and without abnormal injuries next year's 
prospects are already looking brighter. 

Coach O. A. Hankner opened his coaching career on the 
campus with a tough schedule facing him, and in spite of 
injuries and other handicaps facing him, guided the squad 
through the season, often beaten, but unconquered in spirit.

Coach "Bo" Farley's East Carolina Pirates concluded a relatively successful basket- 
ball season here the last of February with a 67-51 victory over Langley Field*s Aces. 
Though the Pirates piled up an early advantage, the game was a hard fought one. 
Lautares, Brock, and Shelton were high scorers. 

Among the hard fought games high-lighting the season, the traditional battle with 
Atlantic Christian ranks among the highest. After the furious battle was over, the score- 
board showed 49 to 46 as the final score. Causing considerable student interest was the 
fact that the victory entitled the Pirates to retain the Bohunk trophy — a prize fought 
over by the rival teams from year to year. 

A victory over Westinghouse Apprentice team rated considerable cheering and 
excitement due to the fact that the Pirates entered the game as underdogs, and then 
emerged victorious with a score of 51-44. Brock, rangy center, paced the Pirates with a 
total of 19 points.

Coach Gordon Gilbert's Pirates got off to a bad start for the 1939 season, by dropping the first game 
to Campbell College's nine to the tune of 13-5. Joe Hatem and Floyd Hinton led the Teachers in hits. 

During the remainder of the season the Pirates picked up considerably. On April 10 and 11, the 
Pirates split a pair of games with the High Point College nine. In the first game Earl Smith, Bill Shelton, 
and Floyd Hinton led the Teachers as they walked away with the game, 22-3, to Kelly Martin's pitching. 
The following day they dropped a close game to the same nine. Results: 9-8. On April 23, the Pirates 
dropped another close one to The Atlantic Christian Bulldogs, 10-9. 

In close succession, the Pirates defeated William and Mary (Norfolk Division), 16 to 1; Louisburg's 
Trojans, 4 to 1; and the Middies of the United States Naval Base (Norfolk), 10 to 9. 

As a whole the season was rather a successful one for the Pirates, although during the last week of the 
season, they dropped games to High Point, split a two-game series with West Carolina. Bright spot in 
closing the season was the win over the Norfolk Naval Base May 13, 10-9. 


Due to insufficient participation and interest, no boxing matches were 
scheduled this year. The boys pictured above trained up until the last minute, 
when plans were finally and definitely dropped, thereby earning a place in the 
yearbook. Fleming and Chadwick, the first two on the front row are both

The Women's Athletic Association sponsors the intra-mural sports of 
basketball, volley ball, and tennis, besides promoting interest in field, track, and 
play days. 

Special divisions of the club embrace the sports of Softball, basketball, 
croquet, tennis, horseshoes, soccer, hiking, table tennis, and archery. College 
letters, sweaters, and an intramural medal reward outstanding work in these 


Usually unpictured are the drudgeries 
undergone in preparing for a game of 
tennis. These pictures were unposed 
(notice the barefooted girl adjusting 
the net), and therefore should picture 
truthfully the preparation for, and the 
playing of a game of tennis.

This year the intercollegiate program for girls' athletics has been dropped 
to make way for more intramural activities. The purpose in mind is to provide 
some form of sport for all members of the student body. Another is to develop 
a cooperative spirit among the different members. A larger number of students 
are participating in these sports this year and additional events have been 
added to the Intra-mural program. 

The heads of these departments, under the capable advisorship of Miss 
Helen McElwain carefully plan out programs for their various departments. 
Play nights were held throughout the year during which large numbers of 
students played volley ball, badminton, shutfleboard, indoor tennis, target 
shooting, etc. 

In the spring and fall week-end hikes were planned, and tennis, Softball, 
archery, soccer and other outdoor sports were given much attention.

The softball team was 
newly organized on the 
campus last spring, and 
this group comprises the 
charter members. 


The soccer team, with 
its captain, Annie Laurie 
Parker pictured in the cen- 
ter, takes on all comers, 
and in the spring holds its 
place of prestige on the 
athletic field. 


All the year round this 
group of girls plays, both 
in the gymnasium, and on 
the field, tackling even 
faculty and boys' teams. 


This group, too, terror- 
izes the athletic field, both 
fall and spring, waylaying 
all challengers, and, in 
spite of falls, they get up 
and go again.
